Binge watching is a real problem in Hawaii, where state workers spent between 100 and 300 hours watching Netflix in a single week, according to the Office of Information Management and Technology, reported Hawaii News Now.That’s enough Netflix viewing to equal an estimated two to nine full-time employees doing nothing but watching streaming content for the full 40-hour work week. – Mary Beth Quirk, The Consumerist
